|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Smooth and approachable, this full-bodied ruby red Cool Climate Shiraz shows red berry, and a hint of cracked pepper on a medium finish. Drinks well on it's own. Pair with ribs, wings, burgers easily. Tasted 2013 vintage in March 2017. 89 points
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Rich and concentrated full-bodied Shiraz from South Australia. Deep inky ruby with aromas and flavours of red and black ripe fruit, leather, tar, chocolate,black pepper, saline and lift of mint. Nice lingering salty fruit finish. Medium acidity. Odd. At $19 it's worth the risk to see if you get similar impressions. Pair with BBQ red meats.
|Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Very ripe, but fresh and well balanced Shiraz, featuring dark fruits and baking spice on the nose. Full-bodied, smooth and rounded, with plush tannins. The vanilla flavours overpower the finish slightly.
|Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:|
Tasted March 26th 2017. The wine was light pink on the rim to purple in the centre. Aroma black cherry, blueberry, mocha, baked bread, pencil shavings. Tasted black fruit on the palate, medium bodied mouth feel with pronounced bold tannin and alcohol. Finished with over powering alcohol flavoured dark fruit. Mouth watering and hot on the back of the palate. Drank without food. I would suggest a food pairing of an Aussi beef dish. Something grilled from the barbie.
Had too much alcohol for my liking. My wife enjoyed finishing the bottle she likes the big bold wines. Per the experts this wine needs some time in the bottle to get better.
Good price so maybe buy and hold!
|The Langhorne Creek is a cool climate winemaking region in Australia and thus this Shiraz shows classic notes of pepper and spice. - Community Wine Reviews|
